Bed and Isa
Remember the subscription date for a Bed and Isa is the date that all trades order in the General account, so these must all be ordered on Thursday 1 April as Friday 2 April and Monday 5 April are bank holidays.
You don’t need to rely on the post to submit applications and top ups. Our ‘scanned documents’ process lets you send completed paperwork to us via secure messaging and submit payments through electronic bank transfer.
You can also make use of our easy-to-use, paper-free and secure e-signatures capability.
We can't accept any responsibility for delays, errors or omissions outside our control that may lead to the Isa application or pension income payments missing the 2020-21 tax year.
